Fans and football fanatics around the world are eager to find out when Cristiano Ronaldo will make his debut for Saudi Arabia club Al Nassr after the footballing legend completed his shock move earlier this week.
Manchester United and Ronaldo mutually agreed to terminate his contract with the English Premier League club in November last year following his explosive interview where he criticised club owners and United's head coach Eric Ten Hag.

Ronaldo apparently had no takers in the major leagues despite being one of the greatest goal-scorers the game has ever seen. He was linked with the move to MLS as well but that never materialised.
The Portuguese international completed his move to Al Nassr on Monday but there has been no confirmation on when he will be making his debut for the club from Asia.
When will Cristiano Ronaldo play for Al Nassr?
Cristiano Ronaldo landed in Saudi Arabia late on Monday night and the club will have to register him in time for their next game which is scheduled to take place on January 5.
Al Ta'ee will be Al Nassr's opponent in their opening game of 2023 on January 5 but the club is running against time to register the footballer on time for that game. There are still a few formalities that are yet to be completed.
Ronaldo is more likely to make his debut for Al Nassr on January 14 against Al-Shabab in an away clash. Al-Shabab are title contenders along with Al Nassr and this is going to be a thriller for sure.
With a contract that runs until 2025, Cristiano Ronaldo will earn a staggering £173 million per year at Al Nassr. Ronaldo's actual pay will be £62 million ($75 million), with the remaining money coming from image rights and business deals.
